AMD Radeon HD 5870 and HD 5850 Performance Chart

We collected several thousand benchmark and game results into a single result chart which shows the relative performance of the various graphics card out there, compared to the newly arrived Radeon HD 5870. Techpowerup underclocked and disabled two SIMDs on their sample to match the specifications of the HD 5850, their result has also been added to the chart; and as you will see, the HD 5850 is on average ~7% faster than the GTX 285. The higher clocked and more powerful HD 5870 is ~10% slower than GTX 295, and 4% slower than their own HD 4870 X2. The HD 5870 is however the fastest single GPU out there now, besting the GTX 285 by almost 20%!

Here are the various reviews released today, many of the their results used to create the chart above ^^,6...-card/Reviews/ (FR)

One special mention to Techpowerup separate article which compares PCIe bottleneck;

What an interesting mix of results! Let's begin our inference of the results by saying that for the Radeon HD 5870, the PCI-Express 2.0 x16 is the broadway it can fit all its four wheels on, and try some road stunts, while it's at it. PCI-Express 2.0 x8 performance, which is perhaps the most crucial set of figures in this review, holds relevance to most people looking to pair two of these cards on mid-range motherboards or one of these cards on an x16 1.x motherboard. It holds even more relevance to users and potential-users of most socket LGA-1156 motherboards, as this is where 16 lanes from the processor's on-die PCI-E switch are split into two 8 lane links. Surprising as it seems, the Radeon HD 5870 is comfortable, with a mere 2% performance drop overall. PCI-Express 2.0 x4 is where the Radeon HD 5870's discomfort is slightly notable, with a 5% drop, and even more surprisingly, on PCI-Express 2.0 x1, big as it seems, the performance drop is "only" 25% overall. Considering that you rob the card most of its data transfer potential, leaving only a 1/16th of the optimum bandwidth, it is still impressive that it can deliver 75% of its performance.
